Below is a timeline explaining how what has taken place in Seattle was made possible in America.

What has taken place could not have possibly happened in a nation under an authoritative Communist regime—like China or Russia—or in a non-Western and non-christianized nation—like countries in the Third World where legalistic religions such as Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism reign.

What is taking place in Seattle could only happen in a post-Christian nation. Here is why.

  • The gospel is planted in America in the early 1600s.
  • Over the centuries the gospel became embedded in the culture, and America was “christianized” and became a “Christian nation”. Consequently the fundamental urgency for individuals to be spiritually born-again and to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ came to be minimized. Just being a born a “Christian” or in a Christian family was satisfactory. Christianity in America become nominal.
  • In such a way America has become a “post-Christian” nation. The mainstream culture now denies God and His Son Jesus, leaving only a form of godliness—a “christianized” culture which totally lacks the power to transform people (2 Timothy 3:5).
  • With its roots in the Bible, the post-Christian culture of “compassion” declares that all races are equal (Galatians 3:28).
  • However, the mainstream culture in the West now hates God and denies His holy Word. With the absence of absolutes, the concept of immorality to be followed by eternal judgement is considered little more than a joke. Westerners now enjoy the “freedom” to pursue any abhorrent lifestyle they choose. There is no more shame, but only pride in their flaunting of God’s Word. In a post-Christian culture, “freedom from sin” through the gospel is turned 180 degrees to become “freedom to sin”—to do whatever our flesh desires or craves.
  • “God loves you unconditionally no matter what”—taken out of its biblical context—will lead to progressive liberalism. 
  • The death of George Floyd is now being used by extreme leftists/socialists—ardent followers of Marx—to destroy the Judeo-Christian foundation of the US which they hate.
    Question: The “christianized” culture of the West was the eventual result of the Reformation through the German Reformer, Martin Luther. Did this “christianized” culture later give birth to socialism through another German named Karl Marx?
    If so, this would be the fulfillment of 2 Peter 2:20. “If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning.”
    2 Timothy 3:1 is also fulfilled. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.”

    • Black Lives Matter has 13 guiding principles that include being “committed to fostering a queer‐affirming network” and “freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking.” The group is also committed to “doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.” Significantly, with many black leaders saying the biggest problem they face is fatherless homes, Black Lives Matter is against the “Western” idea of the nuclear family, preferring a collectivist authority over children. “We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, and especially ‘our’ children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable,” the organization says.

  • Black Lives Matter is now used by extreme leftists and socialists to destroy the Judeo-Christian foundation of America.
  • Socialism declares that everything should be “FREE”. This is the perverted offspring of the scriptural teaching of the FREE gift of salvation by grace available to everyone through faith and not by works. Socialism demands FREE and EQUAL income for everyone regardless of merit or work, FREE education, FREE healthcare, and so on.
  • The Bible teaches us to love our enemies, to be patient and to turn the other cheek. But this has been hijacked by leftists to destroy the rule of law in America, beginning in Seattle with CHAZ/CHOP. And the liberal authorities in Seattle are patiently going along with them. “It’s just a block party.”
  • ERGO, CHAZ (or CHOP)

Progressive liberalism leaning toward socialism is the inevitable offspring of a post-Christian culture.
